It’s hard to believe our official CAB term is almost up, but in a few short weeks our little adventure will indeed come to an end (providing, of course, that GM can find mine when the time comes!) I’ve talked a lot about the car and the experience -more elsewhere than here, though there are posts to be done too- and we’ve all done our duty with reams of feedback for GM. I cannot wait to see what comes of it all.
Until then, it’s time for one last meet-up, and we thought we’d amp this one up a bit (pun intended). For the first time since we’ve been doing these, ours are not the only new plug-ins on the road around here- and we’d like to see just how many we can get together. We’ll assemble at the GM Training/Alt Fuel Center in Burbank (yup, that one) on Saturday, Feb 5th at 10am, and have a little road rally to SCE’s Irwindale facility about 25 miles away. I’ve not been there, but have been hearing for a while how cool their various technology displays are- and I can guarantee the company will be good! Addresses and other details here. All are welcome, as are all cars- Volts, Leaves, Teslas, Mini Es, RAVs, Rangers, Brammos…and yes, gas cars too. Bring what you got- but more importantly, bring you.
Should you get there early, go by and see Paula at the Riverside Cafe on the corner. When we were camped out for a very rainy month several years ago on her street, Paula became den mother and chief cheerleader, providing many of the essentials of my temporarily distilled life: hot coffee, warming garbanzo bean soup, fantastic cinnamon muffins, 24/7 access to her bathroom, and endless moral support. And she has been, hands down, the most excited person to test drive my Volt so far and see how very far we’ve come.
How very far. Come see.
PS- There are no formal RSVPs required, but I’d be grateful if you’d drop a comment here or on the CAB site if you can join us so we can get some sense of the size of the group- and the cars!
PPS- East Coast rally added! Sadly, cancelled due to weather. Stay warm and dry, guys!
